Over the weekend, John Beauprez took down the first short-handed tournament of the 2013 WSOP, winning the $1,500 Six-Max for $324,764. Well today, we kick off the second installment of six-handed play with Event #11 $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em (Six Handed).
There was not a $2,500 buy-in six-max last year, but Simon Charette won a $3,000 buy-in version for $567,624 and his first gold bracelet. Charette had to beat out a stacked final 18 that returned for Day 3 of that event that included Eugene Katchalov (17th), Ryan Fair (15th), Taylor Paur (13th), Freddy Deeb (10th), Andrew Lichtenberger (8th), Scott Montgomery (7th), Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier (6th), and Foster Hays (5th).
The action is ready to get started at noon, and this should be one of the most action packed events of the whole series. The simple increase of $1,000 in the buy-in from last week’s event will mean a huge increase in the talent level of the field, as many of the big name pros, especially the online guys, love to play this tournament. We will have the updates all day here at Pokernews.com, so don’t go anywhere!
